We spent a weekend with the family at the Excelsior and enjoyed our stay. We were pleasantly surprised by the staff who were extraordinarily friendly and helpful. They organized tickets to shows (Arosa Humor Festival) and a pick-up from the train station, and everything worked our perfectly. It seems as if the hotel is under new management, and they are...

We took our Christmas and newyears holiday at the Excelsior. I looked carefully at the available hotels in Arosa and was aware of some mixed reviews in the past but those were also under old management. Now there is a new and vibrant couple running the hotel and i must say, they really make their guests the number 1 priority.... More

We stayed here for one night Dec 24/25th. Very friendly receptionist, great breakfast buffet. The extra goodies included the free Minibar (Beer and soft drinks) and the afternoon cake/sweets buffet. The rooms are nice. Only the bathroom is a bit outdated. Regardless, everything is very clean. I can only recommend The Excelsior.

The answer first -- my family had excellent vacation in The Excelsior this January! From the very beginning we felt a very professional and personal approach to our needs and requests. As a result, the hotel staff have made our trip with two very active little boys very-very easy and pleasant. I would definitely recommend The Excelsior as a family... More

Great facility, excellent service, wonderful comp. breakfast, comp. water, long climb but good for exercise. Very friendly staff who offered great advice. Used taxi to and from railway station since I had two suitcases and would have been awkward to walk up and down steep slope.

We enjoyed our stay at the Excelsior Hotel for a long weekend in April, so in between seasons. The hotel is easy to reach from the train station, we got there in about 20 minutes by foot. Excellent welcome, in 5 minutes we were in our room on the 6th floor. Room was small but cosy, everything clean and well... More

The offered also a good wine selection and there is a lounge with a bar where you can relax. The room was clean and comfortable with a balcony and a nice view. The hotel has... More

This is a beautifully presented hotel. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We were on a half board deal and were a bit apprehensive as we normally enjoy trying different restaurants in a resort. The food was superb with a completely different menu each night and was probably the highlight of the stay. Arosa is a paradise for skiers... More

The Excelsior Hotel was a random choice of venue to celebrate several family events. We could not have made a better choice. The hotel is under new management. and was open .for its first ever summer season. Our group ranged in age from 8 -70. and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff are friendly, nothing was too... More
